Lieutenant Colonel Paul Davis is a person who goes by the book for which he is respected by his fellow workers. As a liaison between Stargate Command and The Pentagon, he is often seen at the SGC, helping Stargate Command when they come in conflict with other nations on Earth and other portions of the United States government.


Liasion for Stargate Command

Dealing with the Black Hole

Major Davis served as the President's messenger to Stargate Command when they lost contact to the facility. He escorted Major General George S. Hammond to his airplane to Washington D.C.. (SG1: "A Matter of Time")

Rescue of SG-1

When SG-1 was captured by Hathor, he was sent to Stargate Command to coordinate the rescue mission with The Pentagon. After the initial rescue mission was trapped on Eskal, he informed General Hammond that the Pentagon would not approve a second rescue mission. (SG1: "Into the Fire")

Foothold at the SGC

During a Foothold situation at Stargate Command, the Stragoth called for him to come to the SGC and used the Mimetic imaging device to impersonate him. When Major Samantha Carter killed the alien impersonating him, he awakened and helped take back the facility. (SG1: "Foothold")

The Replicator Threat

When SG-1 were beamed onto the Biliskner to try to stop the Replicators from becoming a threat to Earth, Davis traveled to Stargate Command to coordinate the defense with The Pentagon. After the Biliskner crashed he informed SG-1 that they lost contact with the Russian Submarine Blackbird and it had been infested by Replicators. He inquired if any Goa'uld technologies they've collected can stop these machines; Teal'c responds that energy weapons are ineffective and only projectile based weapons can destroy them. He then traveled to the Naval base where the Blackbird was docked and helped to coordinate the destruction of the Replicators. (SG1: "Nemesis", "Small Victories")

The X-301 incident

Major Davis later helped Major Carter at the makeshift mission control in the Stargate Operations room during the test of the X-301 Interceptor. When the Recall device took the ship into deep space, he helped Stargate Command rescue Colonel Jack O'Neill and Teal'c. (SG1: "Tangent")

Building the AG-3

In Daniel Jackson's vision of a possible future given to him by the Harcesis child, Shifu.(SG1: "Absolute Power")

Negotiating with the Russians

He also assisted Daniel Jackson in negotiations with the Russians for their Dial Home Device when Teal'c was stuck in the wormhole after the Stargate deactivated. In exchange for the DHD, he offered Naquadah generator technology. (SG1: "48 Hours")

Stopping an Asteroid

When Anubis tried to destroy Earth with a Naquadah asteroid, he traveled to Stargate Command to monitor SG-1's attempt to destroy the asteroid with a Nuclear warhead. He believed that the Tel'tak they were using crashed as it impacted the surface to fast but was unaware they ship entered a crater and was able to slow down. Later, he evacuated to the Alpha Site. (SG1: "Fail Safe")

Anubis' Mothership

When Anubis' Ha'tak entered Earth orbit, he joined SG-1, Jacob Carter and Dr. Friesen on a mission to investigate. They determined the ship was empty and ringed aboard. They headed to the Pel'tak and discovered the self-destruct had been activated and was stalled halfway through the countdown. He and Major Carter went to the computer core to try and shut down the self-destruct. Jacob had to activate the Life support systems in that area and unknowingly released three Jaffa. When they got to the door it was fused shut and Colonel Jack O'Neill used C-4 to bow a hole in it. They discovered that Thor's mind had been downloaded in the computer and took control of the ship. The Jaffa killed Friesen and headed to the Pel'tak. They shot Jacob in the shoulder and set the ship to crash into the atmosphere. They then ringed to the Tel'tak and were killed by Teal'c but the ring controls were destroyed in the fight. Unable to escape they crashed into the Pacific Ocean. They were rescued by Teal'c and Jonas Quinn in the Mini submarine. (SG1: "Descent")

The Prometheus Incident

When Julia Donovan, a reporter for !nside Access, got too close to the truth of the new X-303 vessel Prometheus, Davis was sent to try and convince her not to run with the story. When she refused, he and Major Carter went over her head to the network president. Under orders from the Pentagon, they granted her and a film crew access to the unfinished vessel, in return for her sitting on the story until such time as the government authorized its declassification. The tour went sour when the film crew was actually rogue NID agents who commandeered the vessel and held Donovan, Carter, and Jonas Quinn hostage. Davis had to answer to the wrath of Colonel O'Neill when the betrayal was discovered. Much to his distaste, he followed the Joint Chiefs orders and delivered the disgraced Colonel Frank Simmons and Goa'uld Adrian Conrad to the hostage takers. Knowing Simmons was in on the deal, he tried to force Simmons to talk, but Simmons saw through Davis's bluff. After delivering the prisoners, Davis continued to coordinate rescue efforts with O'Neill and Teal'c, as well as Major Carter, who had escaped and was hiding on board the ship. (SG1: "Prometheus")

Investigating Senator Kinsey's "Death"

After Senator Robert Kinsey's apparent assassination by Colonel Jack O'Neill, he helped coordinate the investigation with The Pentagon and the local authorities. (SG1: "Smoke and Mirrors")

Disclosing the Stargate

He worked together with General Hammond in presenting the Stargate Program to representatives of the UN Security Council. (SG1: "Disclosure")

Negotiations with the Amra

About a year later, He traveled to Stargate Command to participate in the negotiations with the delegates from Amra. Later, he and Colonel Albert Reynolds briefed Brigadier General Jack O'Neill on possible rescue plans to free SG-1 from Ba'al using Symbiote poison. (SG1: "Zero Hour")

Helping the Free Jaffa Nation

As claimed by Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell in 2005, Major Davis, along with SG-7, helped the Jaffa set up a new government based on democratic ideals. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 1")

Execution of Ba'al

He was present at Stargate Command as SG-1 was leaving for the Tok'ra homeworld to witness the extraction of Ba'al. (SG1: "Continuum")

Member of Homeworld Command

The Wraith attack

During the Battle of the Super-hive, Major Davis, now a member of Homeworld Command is introduced to Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard and helps to explain how the super-hive has made it to Earth weeks early. When Sheppard suggests arming F-302s with nuclear weapons to launch a first strike against the hive ship, Davis admits it will take some doing to accomplish and sets out to get the process started. As Sheppard is about to launch his attack, Davis and Carter inform him that the Wraith are targeting Area 51 and that the Control Chair has been moved there. Davis helps Carter monitor Sheppard's dogfight with the Wraith Darts and is unable to object to Sheppard's plan to launch a suicide run on the super-hive as a last resort. As the hive ship scans the planet and then powers weapons, Davis reports on it to Carter and signals to her that they don't have ten minutes when Sheppard tells her that that's the amount of time they need. After Sheppard destroys the hive ship with his nuke, Davis excitedly reports that the hive ship has been destroyed and is greatly worried when they lose contact with Atlantis. He is relieved when contact is reestablished and announces that they are now tracking the city again. (SGA: "Enemy at the Gate")

Dealing with the IOA

After the capture of Rodney McKay, Davis, now a Lieutenant Colonel, aided Richard Woolsey and Jack O'Neill in dealing with the IOA's efforts to crucify Woolsey. (SGA: "The Furies")

  • Major Davis is often jokingly referred to by fans as 'Major Disaster' Davis, as he only ever appears at Stargate Command when a serious crisis takes place.
  • It should also be noted that Davis has yet to be promoted. He was a Major in both his first and his last appearance which took place over ten years apart. Given his time in service, he should be a Colonel or at the very least, a Lieutenant Colonel.
